Santuario de la Inmaculada Concepcion, Santiago

(4.5/5 based on 2,200+ reviews on the web)
A commanding statue of the Virgin Mary dominates the landscape at Santuario de la Inmaculada Concepcion. Built in 1904 to commemorate the 50-year anniversary of the dogma of the Immaculate Conception, the 12 m (39 ft) statue stands on a site sacred to the indigenous prior to colonialism. Visit the church to admire its stone architecture, and step inside to look for several murals and statues. From the top of the hill, you can see over all Santiago and even to the snow-capped Andes. Take a hike up the hill to get there, or for an easier time ascending or descending, ride the funicular or hire a cab. For travelers who use our international travel planner, Santiago holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Santuario de la Inmaculada Concepcion and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.
